GenPhilly explored the often contradictory images about women & aging that are presented to us through the media, popular culture, and film.
In contrast to traditional social images of “the little old lady”, women today are creating new perceptions about what it means to grow older. Many contemporary women continue to juggle work, family responsibilities, a social life, and social activism as they age, and are appearing more frequently in the public eye as sexy, strong and independent figures.
